The VAN DEER FREERIDE 108 172 is a freeride ski for big mountain skiers ready to drop big lines in any terrain. At 108 mm underfoot it’s the widest and one of the most exciting skis Marcel Hirscher has developed: easy to control, light in the air, stable at speeds, and floaty in powder – this is your buddy for ripping the entire mountain. It delivers awesome floatation in deep snow, allows you to charge through chop, and is very maneuverable, responsive, and capable of handling harder snow too. It features our tip & tail rocker and is constructed according to the same ‘winning line’ recipe as the rest of our VAN DEER range, including: a poplar wood core reinforced by double Titanal and Carbon layers, full ABS sidewalls, race edges, a P-Tex race base, plus some undisclosed ingredients. And since Marcel wouldn’t approve anything less than perfect, the Freeride 108 comes with a genuine Race Room finish, too.
